Theatre in the Mind

  • Spend your Saturday gaining new insights into ASF productions through the acclaimed Theatre in the Mind and Bard Talk lecture discussions! 

    Designed around the plays presented each season, you can participate in free pre-show discussions, author, cast, designer and director talks at ASF, most Saturdays at noon.

    BardTalks are short (15-minute) pre-show introductions to all Shakespeare performances at ASF and to every play during repertory weekends and SWP weekend (May 12-14, 2017).

    Theatre in the Mind (TIM) programs can also be arranged in your hometown or school! Contact the ASF education office for more information. 
    Theatre in the Mind is graciously sponsored by Auburn University Montgomery. 

    Hosted by Dr. Susan Willis, ASF's resident dramaturg, these entertaining and thought-provoking lectures by noted theatre scholars complement a perfect Saturday afternoon at the theatre!

    Reservations are not required; you may pick up your ticket at the box office counter just before each lecture. Theatre in the Mind is free and open to the public. You do not need to be a ticket holder to that day's performance to attend the lecture.
